Hey! How was your Christmas Day?


Hi everyone,

I hope you had a joyful Christmas. Mine was just ok. If you have been following along, you know that I had my ups and downs since the season started. It did not get better. However,  I am grateful for all the blessings and I know better days are ahead for certain. I was also happy to see how excited the kids were when they saw all the gifts that Santa left under the tree. "The best way to see Christmas is through the eye of a child". And I couldn't ask for better rewards than to see Aby and the twins happy.

My top 5 Perfumes to wear to the gym & Sportwear @Lilophia

Hi everyone,
 
I was reviewing my recent post about workouts habits (here) and I think that  I forgot one of the most important thing for me: Fragrances. I never go to the gym or to any other physical activities without me putting some perfume on. Now, some might think that's it is inappropriate to wear fragrance to the gym but I strongly disagree. I say "yes", if it's light and refreshing so of course that excludes, leathers, ouds, heavy spices, or candy-sweet vanillas/fruity. floral.  Aquatics, citrus and light florals fit the bill nicely and obscure the natural but not-so-nice body odors that tend to fog the air.   So today, I thought that  I would share my top 5 perfumes to wear to the gym with you.

The Orange Sweater Dress @Lilophia Boutique

Hi everyone,

It was just another bad hair day with the exception I was having a fun photographed try-on session @Lilophia. I came across this dress and instantly felt pretty. I then rushed in the dressing room to fix those messy hair. This color gives me life! How many times we want something to look good on us and although, it fits perfectly it doesn't do anything for us but we are not quite sure why? Or you sometimes hear people talk about how blue is "their" color, or how they look awful in peach. Did you know that your skin undertone defines what colors actually looks good on you?

Pop Up Try-on @BelOptik - Eyewear


Hi everyone,

I love eyewear. Eyewear consists of items and accessories worn on or over the eyes, for fashion or adornment, protection against the environment, and to improve or enhance visual acuity. Common forms of eyewear include glasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses. So I use glasses and sunglasses. I am short-sighted (myope) so I do wear glasses - I like them fashionable -  and I am supposed to wear them all the time. I also love sunglasses and I own a few pairs. When I have my glasses on, you will find my sunglasses on top of my head used mostly as a headband.

5 ways to wear a tea-length skirt

Hi everyone,

First of all, thanks to everyone who either participates on the poll over my IG or to those who provide feedback here. I decided to keep my current blog design and develop the mobile version. It's live now. Also, LaMoumous has widden the blog layout (larger images now) and changed its tagline from "The lookbook of a shopaholic" to "All About Confidence and Feeling Good". I think it is now more appropriate given that the blog is now a platform where we want to help other women to look good and feel good in their own skin by finding their personal style & image branding.

Upon request, I am sharing my texlax process with you.

My Face Skincare Regimen Update + 10 Tips for an Healthy Skin

No makeup and filter other than the early morning daylight
 Hi Everyone,

My mom used to say that a woman should always take care of her face because it's your "passport". Growing old, we become more self conscious about our appearance which sometimes may impact our self confidence. I personally think that once you are in your 20's you definitely need to set up an appropriate face care regimen so you always look clean, fresh and ready to go with minimal to no makeup.
